Bridging Binaries Tour at the Museum of Zoology

‘Animals don’t do sexual identity; they just do sex.’

From same-sex sexual behaviour in giraffes and penguins to the scientists working in the field of zoology. How do the labels and categories we give animals affect the way we interact with the natural world? Enjoy an LGBTQ+ tour of the Museum of Zoology with volunteer tour guide, Kate.

Since 2018, the Bridging Binaries team of volunteer guides has been sharing their personal selection of fascinating stories about gender and sexual identity through a range of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-related objects from across the University of Cambridge Museums.
